Snow Emergency Begins at 2 p.m. Monday, January 26, Parking Ban Begins Tuesday

Mayor Coleen J. Seng has declared a snow emergency for the City of Lincoln. The snow emergency will take effect at 2 p.m. Monday, January 26. A snow emergency means parking is banned on emergency snow routes, bus routes and other major arterial streets. A map showing these routes can be found on page 38 in the blue pages of the Alltel phone directory. Vehicles parked in violation of the ban may be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense. The ban will remain in effect until further notice.

Mayor Seng has also announced that a residential parking ban will go into effect at 8 a.m. Tuesday, January 27. This is a total parking ban, and parking will be banned on both sides of the street in most residential areas until plows have cleared the snow.

The only exception to the total parking ban is in high-density neighborhoods. In these neighborhoods, parking will be banned on the even numbered sides of the street, that is the north and east sides. When this side is cleared, the parking ban will switch to the other side of the street. The time and date of the switch will be announced by the media. A map of high-density areas also can be found on page 38 of the blue pages in the Alltel phone directory.

Cars parked in violation of the residential ban can be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense.

Lincoln City Libraries will close today (Monday, January 26) at 6 p.m. due to the inclement weather.

The latest snow information will be posted on the City web site at lincoln.ne.gov.
